Though some DINOS are sipping the corporatist moonshine as of late, most are still fighting for the middle class.

Epic fail. Republican policies have been destroying the middle class. "trickle down economics" was a failure under reagan, bigger failure under bush, and a beyond massive failure under W. Republican fiscal policies have never, and will never work. Clinton's wild success is a perfect example how democratic fiscal plans are successful for everyone, especially the middle class and small business.

LOL! CD is better than comedy central! The democrats want everyone to be successful, especially a thriving middle class . Today's radical right wing extremists want two classes, the elitists and the poor. Bust unions, forget child labor, 80 hour work weeks, horrid working conditions and bare bones pay. Turning america into the next fascist reign is the far right's wet dream.

The Republicans all the way.

"The rent is due..." Democratic solution...hey, your government check is on it's way. Take the path of least resistance. Go for the entitlements. (Socialism)

Democratic solution for creating jobs. Hire more federal employees, bail out failed companies and tell them how to operate. Give the unions more control and screw the investors. (Fascism)

"We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living. The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all. Therefore, we demand: an end to the power of the financial interests . We demand profit sharing in big business. We demand a broad extension of care for the aged. We demand. . . the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state, and municipal governments. In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our system of public education. . . . We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents. . . . The government must undertake the improvement of public health — by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor — by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth. We combat the . . . materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of " The Common Good Before the Individual Good ."

The Nazi platform of 1920. Sounds very familiar.

I make under 30k a year but will always vote for the GOP. The democrats are fascists.

Who better represents the Middle Class in this country?

Why?
Define SUPPORTS, do you mean distribution of wealth or do you mean business friendly so more businesses employ?

1) Democrats - party on the common man
2) Republicans - party of the elite white male.
3) Independent - not big enough to sway
4) Libertarians - Everyman for themselves.
5) Socialists - Joke, right?
6) Tea Party - off casts of the Libertarians/Republicans. Really a sub group, they are going to hurt the GOP's votes going forward.

Neither party supports middle class.

Rs rob middle class to benefit the rich.
Ds rob middle class to benefit the poor.

Maybe Ds support middle class a bit more.....

I'd say the Democrats support the middle class more so than the Republicans. Both parties are really looking out for themselves and getting as many votes as they can from their demographics.

What does this prove? That Hitler and his fascist clones were liars.

Meanwhile back here in the real world, big business is destroying our political system by introduction of massive amounts of cash so as to limit who can run for office, who can be heard, and by buying politicians and elections. All of this while right wing nut cases are working on trying to limit the rights of the people to vote.

Are we supposed to be grateful he didn't go on a shooting rampage or vengefully prey on real estate agents? Perhaps he might recall the purpose of having allegiances to his family, his community, and his country rather than toking on a politically sponsored prosperity preachers crack pipe?

However high and mighty/ smarter than the average bear he thought he was, he doesn't appear to realize just yet that he actively fed the very monster consuming his life's work from day one. Expect the very same thing to happen to medical students graduating with $150k debt greeted at the employment door with 30k salaries unless they toe the line for bean counters profiteering from human misery. The very same meet and greet is happening for lawyers, as if any of them are allowed to adhere to the <formerly noble> principles of the profession without taking a vow of poverty.

Question: How many more assaults to the pillars of community are people going to play into before they wake up and smell the Koch agenda? How much money is it going to take to bail out conservatives who sold their soul to Machiavelli just to be on the winning side? How long are democrats going to tolerate conservatives (ex. clinton) crowding into their party? If you can't win honestly, there's nothing worthy of being won. True of all parties. DC is a cesspool and they hold our most precious and priceless national treasures hostage for a hamburger today. For anyone too young to know that reference...

The mooches are not the bottom quintile. They're multi billionaires playing all sides against one another from remote control.

The only people who get to be above all this trashing of capitalism/ power plays are the Amish. That is until the Chinese start collecting their property taxes. Food for thought.
